The Mighty Sound of the South
The University of Memphis Marching Band, the Mighty sound of the South has proudly represented the University of Memphis since the organization of the “Tiger Band” in 1940. Whether performing on campus, in the sixty-one-thousand-seat Liberty Bowl, or locations far away, the Mighty Sound always brings a spirit and energy that enhances the experience for everyone in attendance. With band members representing virtually every academic major in the University, the Mighty Sound of the South is proud to be one of the largest and most diverse organizations on campus.
Students in the Mighty Sound of the South gain access to scholarships and out-of-state tuition waivers, travel to exciting locations in support of our athletic teams, are part of a rich university and band tradition, engage in meaningful music making, and regularly perform for audiences in the tens of thousands. All of this, while forging relationships that will last a lifetime.
